Install XP, but do not activate it. The new owner will have 30 days to activate the software before it locks them out. Just try to get the machine to the new owner as soon as possible.

The new owner will not be able to activate OS if it has been activated and registered with Microsoft,it will give a message that code has been already been activated

You will need to a new copy of XP home other than the one you have

You need either the OEM version, or the FULL retail version of XP home for this.

Check the EULA closely. You normally have to GIVE the final user both the CD and the Certificate of Authenticity.

You want to install XP just a few days before delivery so that there are no activation issues.
Use a non-de-script name for the user and organization.
I use
None Of
Your Business

Actually, you can activate XP, and not register it.

You can assist the final user in changing the registeredowner and organization when you deliver the system.

I recommend that you install any updates that the user may want / need.

Thanks that sounds like a great idea. The systems that I am building come with all the original software.
